I remember all the fun we had as kids at Mrs Warrens house in Chesapeake, VA. The doors were always open. I remember packing in in Darlene’s Pinto more people than was legal. Go to their house. One night my dad came to get us and he was shocked. There a bunch of us teenagers were playing spin the bottle. The twist was when it landed on you you had to quote a scripture. She was always spreading Gods word in various fun and unexpected ways. Thank you Mrs Warren for all so many good times and lessons.
